Planting 2014

As usual, I've been hanging on to this post...but it's been a crazy couple of weeks! Finishing up grad school and getting ready to move to Nebraska has been one heck of an adventure. And it's not over yet! But this post is from planting almost a month ago...

Life with a farmer's son and an ag mechanic is never a dull one. 

I've stacked hay, driven through more equipment lots than one person should ever have to-preview of the rest of my life :), kept the boy company while he worked on one thing or another, helped haul grain to the elevator, and most recently, got to witness the first run with the new planter.

So Cute Sunday: June 8, 2014

Everybody loves babies. It's a fact. 

Today's baby was a surprise to its owners (I don't own any horses so I'm not trying to disguise myself)...and is a bizarre cross between a Morgan mare and a Miniature stud. 

Not sure how that worked but Mother Nature sure is a tricky one...just look at a Zorse!

This Is Why Nobody Leaves Home

I'm an adventurer. If I had a living quarters horse trailer I would just travel the country and float. But even I am half tempted to just say forget about it and move back home right now.

I moved from Virginia to Wyoming for college...and that definitely wasn't all rainbows and butterflies. I did NOT like Wyo that first year. And I changed houses every year I was in college. I spent 2 long years without my darlin' pups. But I ended up falling completely and utterly in love with the West and wouldn't change my experiences for the world.

If you have ever tried to capture pictures of piglets, especially with a cell phone, then you know how incredibly difficult it can be. Those suckers move FAST! But I managed to catch this blue-butt standing relatively still...I sure do love the colored pigs the most :)

Wedding Plans Are Overrated...How Bout We Get Married Covered in Dirt?

I’m not one of those girls who has had her wedding planned out forever.

In fact I’m not even sure I really believed that I would ever get married. (Hello crazy dog lady!)

So when it’s come to making wedding plans my plan has been to make none. And I mean none.

It’s not that it hasn’t been discussed in an abstract sort of way but as far as the legit details? They don’t exist.

Round the World Part Two

At MSP, there was a lounge where every seat had a tablet! Crazy!
The best thing about being a graduate student on the downhill slide to done is the freedom to disappear frequently.

This last semester of grad school has been nothing but crazy. But who wants boring? Not me!

I could wax poetic about my darlin' loves forever. And I'm sure I will at some point, but for today I will just share this picture of my bookends :) They are getting to be old ladies (11 this year) but I swear they will never be anything but puppies at heart...and I wouldn't have it any other way :)
